so i have tried:
./add_install_client -i 10.10.10.20 -e 08:00:20:c2:78:0e -c 10.10.10.7:/export/storage/Solaris9_install -p 10.10.10.7:/export/storage/Solaris9_install wwwserv sun4u
the /etc/bootparams looks like this:
bash-2.05# cat /etc/bootparams
wwwserv root=blade-azonicnet.com:/export/storage/Solaris9_install/Solaris_9/Tools/Boot install=blade-azonicnet.com:/export/storage/Solaris9_install boottype=:in sysid_config=10.10.10.7:/export/storage/Solaris9_install install_config=10.10.10.7:/export/storage/Solaris9_install rootopts=:rsize=32768
the contents of the solaris 9 install image is:
bash-2.05# ls -la
drwxrwxr-x 4 root sysadmin 512 Jul 3 01:13 .
drwxrwxr-x 7 root sysadmin 512 Jun 26 13:22 ..
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 85 Apr 12 2002 .cdtoc
drwxr-xr-x 5 root other 512 Jun 11 19:08 .install
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 32 Jun 11 02:58 .install_config ->
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 462 Jun 11 03:22 .slicemapfile
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 16 Apr 12 2002 .volume.inf

-r--r--r-- 1 root root 6379 Apr 12 2002 Copyright

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root other 257 Jun 11 19:08 installer
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 348 Jun 26 13:45 sysidcfg
so i am missing:
rules , rules.ok and profile_file
what should these files contain? from what i understand they are used with
a jumpstart installation.. which i guess is part of what i am trying to
do, but im not quite sure..
I have never completed a network install befor, just from CD. In wondering if the netra was part of the problem I
quickly reconfigured everything to try a net install on one of my Ultra
1's that has been waiting for me to figure this whole thing out...
it failed with the same results, so i knows its something to do with the
config on the blade 100... thanks for your help... do you, or does anyone
else have any further suggestions?
